A very elegant, large, reclaimed early Edwardian painted oak fire surround, likely to date to C.1905. The fire surround is very heavy, well made and has a classic design with four corbels and a slim shelf in each corner. There are small panels on the crossbar with carved flowers in each and a large panel in the centre of the crossbar featuring very pretty carved flowers, leaves and a bow. The legs have recessed panels and there are mouldings above the chunky feet. The oak has been painted in a matt white/grey which compliments the design well, however there are some knocks and marks to the paint and the sides of the legs are missing some paint from where it was previously fitted. You may wish to sand and re-paint the surround to suit. The surround has a metal fixing loop at the back of the mantel for fixings.
The fire surround is in good antique condition with some signs of age and wear, as expected. The surround has some small knocks and chips. The mantel edge has a small crack. The feet have some scuffs. Please see pictures for condition details. The surround is very large and is ideal for a living or dining room, perhaps paired with a large fire basket or cast iron insert. The fire surround is of a fine quality and will make a wonderful showpiece for a home.
